Hope your all well and enjoying the week and school holidays.
I see so many people everyday who rise to challenges and I see so many who have such a negative mindset towards life, It effects their work , relationships and the way they view life in general.
Sometimes we can’t often choose the things that happen to us but we can choose how we react to those things
and working on yourself is the hardest but most rewarding thing you will ever do.
Spending time on your own teaches you a lot about who you are and although we are social beings spending some time alone allows you to truly chase your own feelings or make your own judgement without being influenced by , friends , family or social media.
I heard the term FOMO ( Fear of missing out ) years ago and today it’s becoming more relevant than ever before.
People are constantly on their phones even when out on a date, with friends on holidays or at work constantly checking to see what others are doing just incase something more interesting or entertaining might be happening. People who make themselves busy just for the sake of being busy to avoid spending time alone. People then ask friends they hardly see for advice or to help them with personal relationships, problems because they have never taken the time out to truly know who they are and what they want and make peace with themselves. There is only one you in this world and nobody knows what you need or want better than you so why would you put your life , your emotional self in the hands of other people. Get to know yourself and do things that make you become a version of yourself that you can then love and become that person. Be true to yourself because the stats show that people that are always chasing others approval and want to be liked by everyone never truly live their lives from their true self and in the process become extremely lonely.
Everyone is caught in this hysteria trying to outdo one another creating these fake personas on social media of how they want to be perceived not who they really are . People post positive , happy photos of simply their idealized selves and then throw in some misery from time to time to keep it real whilst chasing approval.
People spend more time on their social media friends than they do their real relationships and are on call 24/7 for the most small problems. We live in a world that needs instant gratification , nobody can wait anymore not because that cant but because they don’t need to.
People are checking their updates, email, posts, 100 to 1000 times a day and although this is still new and in its infancy its pretty scary where it is heading. Even when you tell yourself I’m not going to check my phone you find yourself reaching for it having one last look and while your at it scroll through your updates and email and then before you know it your losing yourself in this fake world.
We go on holidays take 100’s of photos and then select the best to post on social media because now it’s our time to show everyone how much fun we are having and how exciting your life is .
FOMO is real and it’s creating social misfits because thats what Facebook and all those social media platforms want its changing human behaviour because we need to check and the more we Check the more these social platforms benefit . They designed it like that for a reason and the reality is that there are very few things in life that cant wait.
Reality is your own life, your real relationships are much more important than other peoples and when you start giving it attention and value , your life changes and grows and flourishes. I believe social media has its place but there is no need to communicate to your close friends, children. parents or loved ones thru social media , pick up the phone call them , text them privately you don’t need acceptance or validation. The way our social network is moving I’m not sure if we will ever settle for who we are or what we have rather than cling to the fear that we may be missing out .
Never compare yourself to others as there will always be someone smarter , better looking , richer , more talented than you and by the way there is also someone Dumber , less educated thats doing much better than you .
Just be you because you is more than enough , take the time to get to know you and you might be surprised what you find out about you , your worth , your resilience, intelligence , kindness and in the process find out what truly makes you happy .
As always take care and Ill see you in the gym
